Dealer and I are improving :D Bit of an essay
 
after working with him for a few days , i think we are improving. Nothing major at all but were getting there :)
I have basically been working on transitions , my heels and his rushing into jumps.
He was doing well , today was a bit of an off day. He was listening to me and was going well , until we went on to jumping . I circled him before the jumps which worked for a while , we were trotting into it when he rushed the last few strides and unexpectedly tripped when I was in jumping position and nearly bust my chin , the best thing was i didnt lose my stirrups or fall off.
I put my stirrups up 2 holes and it worked wonders! better balance , more control and I didnt have to even think about keeping my heels down it just came naturally.
As for my canter which was terrible, I took everyones advice . Someone said to pretend to polish the seat with your bum , lean back and sit deap and I must say it went so much better. I didnt bounce all over the place.

As for the height of the jumps I find that if I tell myself
